Edition of 5 + 2 AP

Containers is an ongoing series of performative photographs that feature the artist in apparently natural but human-intervened environments wearing bodysuits she makes out of fabric with designs that represent tropical nature. Container #2 explores the female othered body in relation to ideas of immigration, landscape, preservation, camouflage, assimilation, otherness, refusal (of the gaze, of the availability of one’s image as a person of color) obfuscation and (in)visibility.
